Fancy some Cake, Cardiff?
Iris Prize Film Festival and Birchgrove Women's Institute to premiere short film Cake! during evening of LGBTQ+ films 🍰
On the eve of The WI (National Federation of Women's Institutes) 2018 Annual Meeting at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, Birchgrove WI will host an evening of LGBT+ short films at the nearby Cineworld multiplex.
Drawing from the diverse archives of the Iris Prize Festival, Cardiff’s prestigious international LGBT+ short film award, the evening will culminate in the premiere of Cake!
Fancy sharing some Cake! with us? Seeing what went into the mix, how it all turned out? Then join us at @Cineworld on June 5th, for a night of exceedingly good LGBT+ film making on the eve of NFWI AM 2018 here in Cardiff. Tickets free, booking essential!https://t.co/Iiy33ruFur— BirchgroveWI Cardiff (@BirchgroveWI) April 23, 2018
This short film was written, directed and performed by members of Birchgrove WI, and filmed in the north Cardiff suburb of Birchgrove earlier this year.
It features music from Cardiff music scene stalwarts and John Peel favourites, The Loves, whose frontman Simon Love was nominated for the 2016 Welsh Music Prize.
The evening will conclude with drinks and – of course! - cake in Cineworld’s BAFTA Cymru bar.
